Assistance With Life Issues And School

Dear All,

In keeping with last week’s theme of dealing with life issues while trying to succeed at school work, I thought that I would draw your attention to the great services of the Lehman College Counseling Department. They deal with all sorts of life issues, from depression and anxiety to life coaching for maximum success. There are even special services for Freshmen and Transfer Students. Check it out:

Lehman College Counseling Services

The mission of the Counseling Center is to assist students with emotional, developmental, and psychological concerns that may be affecting their personal and academic growth. Our goal is to assist students in coping with the challenges of college and life in a productive, healthy manner. Students have access to confidential individual and group therapy.

Students may seek our services for a variety of reasons, including:

  • stress/anxiety
  • depression
  • grief/loss
  • loneliness
  • family stress
  • difficulties in romantic relationships
  • academic concerns (e.g. poor time management/procrastination)
  • cultural issues
  • Life Coaching
Special Programming for Freshman and Transfer Students

The Counseling Center is offering special programming to help ease adjustment to Lehman College for Transfer and Freshman Students. We understand how difficult the transition to college can be for those students entering Lehman for the first time. Whether you enter Lehman sure about your major or questioning what career you are interested in, everyone wants to be a success. In the workshop Lehman G.P.S. (goals, priorities, success) you will learn how to create short and long term goals to get you to graduation on time. You will also learn about the resources Lehman has available to help you for free!

Free Science Tutoring at Lehman


Dear All,

I found this resource right here at Lehman College and thought that it might be of interest to you. It is not specifically for Speech and Hearing, but is for pre-med students, many of whom are probably taking Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body.

Science Learning Center

In addition, the Science Learning Center (SLC) has provided tutoring and additional academic support for students pursuing science and math coursework at Lehman. The SLC is committed to the following goals:

  • hiring and training highly qualified tutors,
  • providing workshops which target student academic needs,
  • fostering a positive, motivating atmosphere for student learning, and
  • promoting students’ acquisition of knowledge and critical thinking, independent learning and study skills.

Location & Hours

The Science Learning Center is located in Gillet Hall, room 133. Semester hours are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The Center is not open for tutoring when classes are not in session and when the College is closed. It may, however, be open for scheduled workshops. Please call the Center at 718-960-7707 to confirm workshop hours.

A proposed A&P study group?

How might you guys feel about establishing an informal A&P study group that would meet on Fridays after class? Perhaps there could be a 20-minute break and then you guys could reconvene from 12 noon to 1:00 pm. If you feel that you need my assistance, I could stay (when my schedule allows). But it might be best if this was a peer-led, peer-driven enterprise.

The group could appoint a “reporter” who would be the person responsible for reporting back to me. Questions that arise could then be emailed to me or could be discussed in the following class.

Thoughts on this??

Lets Move Forward….

I think the aftermath theme of todays midterm results is “Moving Forward”, first I want to say congratulations to those who did exceptionally well on the exam! Kuddos to you!!

For the rest of us, who did mediocre or poorly, lets not dwell in sorrow, if you still have a fighting chance to pull an “A” or “B” then we must learn from this experience and apply new strategies to our study habits for the final. The race is not over! We have to study those quizzes on a weekly basis, even after you take them, rehearse, lets start blogging about potential essay questions that could be on the final. We’re smart enough! we could conjure up some ideas…

I hope everyone has a revitalizing spring break and keep pushing to pursue your desires…#letsnotgiveup

I hope this encourages someone, feel free to post and keep the flame burning.
